Moby Dick

Date: 22 Jul 2018

“Call me Ishmael …”

So begins one of the defining tales of human literature, Herman Melville’s 1851 Moby Dick, arguably still the greatest of the Great American Novels.

Aboard the hauntingly atmospheric ship, the Pequod, we get the world in little, a social commentary, an extraordinary adventure and a paean to the sea and it’s most powerful fish, to whaling lore and legend.

Director Adam Cook (The Rolling Stone) brings Orson Welles’ ingenious adaptation of Moby Dick to the stage in a Sport for Jove production featuring Danny Adcock as Ahab, Thomas Royce-Hampton as Ishmael, Wendy Mocke as Queeqeg and Francesca Savige as Starbuck.
